A main dish with warm chicken chili atop crunchy salad greens. When my kids were too young to appreciate salad, I made a separate bowl for them with half the chicken chili, chex, and cheese topped with some of the dressing. Not as healthy, but they liked it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together first four ingredients to form salad dressing. (If you can do this several hours or even a day ahead, it's even tastier.).
  2. Brown onion in sprayed skillet. Add chicken, beans, water, and taco seasoning. Simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Place lettuce in large salad bowl. Sprinkle cheese over top.
  4. When chicken mixture has cooled to warm, pour over lettuce and cheese. Pour dressing over all and sprinkle with Corn Chex.
